HISTORY
The tire ashtray dates to the early 1900s, a time when "the big three", Firestone, Goodyear, and B.F. Goodrich, built a tire kingdom in Akron, Ohio. Early ashtrays were made of metal, while later ashtrays are typically glass with rubber tire exteriors. Here is a great article about the tire ashtray:
